As a Global Communications Director Kat has worked with brands and entrepreneurs pioneering social and environmental change for over 30 years including Good Energy, Homeless World Cup, Nike, UEFA, Vodafone Foundation, Beyond Sport, Muhammad & Lonnie Ali, Desmond Tutu, Eric Cantona, Colin Farrell and Lewis Hamilton.

In 2000 she founded Authentic PR, as featured in The Guardian, The Times and Director, providing communication with integrity for businesses with a purpose pioneering the Purpose Economy now worth over £100 million in the UK alone. She was also the publisher of New Consumer, the UK’s leading authentic and ethical lifestyle magazine.

At the Homeless World Cup, Kat was instrumental in growing the organisation from 20 to 70 nations, positively impacting 250,000 people in 5 years. She generated $25+ million in media coverage; and was Executive Producer for documentary, Kicking It narrated by Colin Farrell, selected for the Sundance and Tribeca Film Festivals and sold to US Sports Channel ESPN.

Then she burnt out. Following her Heart to Antigua the Caribbean Sea restored her wellness and inspired a radical, regenerative business model – True Business. True Business leads with your heart’s wisdom and creative spirit rather than profit and has since served 300+ creative leaders in 14 countries to thrive with impact and legacy.

What they say

When I aligned with my heart new financial partnerships came knocking at my door, my website traffic went up by 50% and my turnover up by 30%. Being in the Financial Times is the pinnacle for me as a personal finance writer.

Lynn Beattie, Mrs MummyPenny

“A really big “thank you” for all the hard work and dedication you put in to the Homeless World Cup and for the way in which you have helped to change the lives of thousands of people through football.”

Rio Ferdinand, Footballer

By following the wisdom of her heart, Step created her True Business: “Your invitation to sit with the new vision of working with men during PR with Heart, Kat, opened up and clarified the direction for my work.”

“Kat’s like a spark plug. You come away ignited.”

“The greatest gift from True Business has been simplicity. It has allowed my offerings to emerge and they are all things I never thought I’d be able to do as work. Photography and taking people into Nature feel so obvious as they are part of me. The business I needed to bring to the world has now been allowed to emerge.”
